‘I HAD NO CHOICE’
While Quince said ‘I had no choice but to offer my resignation’, Trott underlined that he resigned due to ‘loss of trust’.
In the UK, Chris Pincher, the Conservative Party’s Group Leader in Parliament, resigned from his post after reports of harassment in The Sun newspaper.
Prime Minister Johnson was accused of appointing Chris Pincher despite being aware of similar allegations against him in the past.
The Prime Minister’s Office had previously stated that it was not aware of the harassment allegations, but Johnson later admitted that he had received such an accusation against Pincher three years ago.
HE WON THE VOTE OF CONFIDENCE WITH A BIG DEFEAT
Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who was under intense pressure to resign due to the parties held at the Prime Minister’s Residence, especially during the Covid restrictions, said that he would not leave office even if he lost the by-elections.
Johnson had won the vote of confidence in his party’s parliamentary group on June 6 with 211 votes against 148.
However, the fact that more than 40 percent of the Conservative Party’s 359 MPs wanted Johnson to leave office was interpreted as very difficult days awaiting the British Prime Minister in the coming period in domestic politics.
